Personalized Estate Liquidation Benefiting Youth, Inc. (PEL) recently hosted a private concert—“Rocking the Roof four Our Youth”—featuring Atlanta-based singer/songwriter Michelle Malone, and raised $17,000 in support of the Sarasota YMCA's Roberta Leventhal Sudakoff Youth Shelter. The Youth Shelter provides temporary housing and safe care for youths ages 10-17 who have run away, are experiencing family conflict or have been locked out of their homes. The shelter is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week; there are 20 beds available. According to YMCA leaders, at least 90 percent of the youths reunite with their families or find suitable living arrangements; while in the shelter, all have their counseling needs met.

PEL, a qualified 501(c)(3) nonprofit, and PEL Consignments, LLC, its affiliated company, run estate sales from people’s homes or from its 9,400 square-foot store. Donating and shopping at PEL enables the nonprofit arm of its operations to help a variety of causes that support youth in the community, including the Sarasota YMCA Youth Shelter, Booker High School Foundation, Faces of Accomplishment, Forty Carrots Family Center, Child Protection Center, Community Haven, and Mothers Helping Mothers.
